Clear, Radiant-Looking Skin

Skin Care Doctor San DiegoEveryone wants a smooth, clear, radiant complexion. Unfortunately, aging, sun damage and medical conditions can compromise the health and beauty of the skin. Dr. Dennis Bucko and his team at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center offer a range of treatments and products for luminous skin. Dr. Bucko’s licensed aesthetician works one-on-one with each of his patients to learn their specific concerns and to develop a suitable plan of treatment. The treatment plan could include any of the following components:

VISIA Skin Analysis

VISIA Skin Analysis is a digital system that helps patients understand their skin and monitor the progress of cosmetic treatment. The technology captures front- and side-facing images of the face, and records and measures the surface of the skin. It makes a quantitative assessment of the skin features (e.g., pigmentation, wrinkles, textures, photodamage), and analyzes skin conditions.

Based on this data, the licensed aesthetician is able to suggest treatments that are suitable for the patient’s skin type, conditions and needs. Together, the patient and aesthetician design a customized skin management protocol, which could include a treatment like microdermabrasion or chemical peel, or special skin care products.

Advanced Pigment Therapy (Cosmelan)

Looking for depigmentation surgery in San Diego? Cosmelan, an advanced pigment therapy, is a medical-grade treatment that targets all types of uneven pigmentation issues. It consists of a topical solution with active ingredients that lighten existing dark patches while inhibiting the development of new ones. Belladerma includes some of the most excellent Cosmelan doctors in the area.


Waxing is a quick and easy alternative to tedious shaving and tweezing. Many areas of the face and body can be waxed, including the eyebrows, chin, arms, legs and bikini area. Waxing usually takes 30 to 60 minutes. Hair usually grows back finer and sparser after regular waxing.

Permanent Makeup Application

Permanent makeup application is a cosmetic treatment in which pigmentation is tattooed to the skin to enhance the facial features. It is commonly used for the lips, eyelids and brows. For the most organic-looking results, the makeup is color-matched to natural hair color. The Belladerma team includes a medical aesthetician specially trained and board-certified in micropigmentation.

Fit Skin for Men

Fit Skin for Men is an effective regimen of simple treatments and products specifically designed for men.

Skin Excavation Treatment

A deep pore cleaning treatment designed for men with oily skin that are prone to blackheads and/ or acne. It’s an effective treatment that eliminates blocked pores resulting in clearer-looking skin.

Razor Burn Relief

A treatment created for skin that suffers from redness and irritation caused by shaving, harsh products, rosacea or other causes of inflammation. It is designed to calm skin and reduce redness and inflammation.

Skin Quencher

A hydrating treatment that will help restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier eliminating tightness and dryness, leaving the skin soft and smooth. Suited for men who spend a lot of time outdoors enduring environmental damage, such as weather, that causes dry skin.

Any of these skin treatments can be performed independently or combined with a surgical or non-surgical procedure for comprehensive results. Dr. Bucko’s licensed aesthetician may prescribe a specific skin care regimen to complement the results of facelift surgery, microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. In some cases, special products can help the skin heal faster from another treatment. The possibilities are discussed during a consultation with his aesthetician.
